At GIE+Expo 2021, Bobcat Company is showcasing its latest products for grounds maintenance, turf and landscaping professionals. The company’s new commercial mid-size walk-behind WB700 series mowers will be on display, as will its L23 and L28 small articulated loaders, the new UW56 Toolcat utility work machine, two new R2-Series Compact Excavators, several new attachments and the company’s lineup of zero-turn mower models, which have undergone notable enhancements since launching in 2020.
The company will also have the T66 and T76 R-Series Compact Track Loaders and the S64 R-Series Skid-Steer Loader on display for the first time at this show. Attendees will also be able to see a demonstration of MaxControl, Bobcat’s proprietary, app-based remote operation technology on the T76. Launched in 2019, the MaxControl app turns an operator’s smartphone into a control unit for the loader with the ability to command machine functions and operate attachments from outside of the cab — up to 300 feet away.
“We are excited to bring such a robust product lineup to the GIE+Expo 2021 show and have the opportunity to connect with turf professionals, landscape contractors and acreage owners across the country,” says Kelly Humble, senior marketing manager, product planning, at Doosan Bobcat North America. “The reliability, efficiency and never-quit attitude of Bobcat is a perfect match for the people who work tirelessly day after day to keep their operations running at optimum capacity.”
Some specifics on the company’s 2021 GIE+Expo lineup:
- Bobcat will unveil three new commercial walk-behind mowers, all featuring powerful Kawasaki FS series engines, operator-friendly controls and updated hydraulic transmissions.
- The new UW56 Toolcat utility work machine serves as a pickup, compact tractor, loader and work vehicle, delivering the power and productivity owners need to take on the day. The UW56 can be paired with more than 45 different attachment configurations, increasing versatility and productivity for any grounds maintenance or turf jobsite. This latest model comes equipped with redesigned all-LED lights for optimum visibility and long-term durability, even in low-light working conditions. An enhanced drive response system provides smoother acceleration/deceleration, and automatically recalls drive response settings for added convenience and efficiency. Other updates include improved corrosion protection, an overhead dashboard with an integrated 5-inch display and ultra-comfortable cab.
- The new E32 and E35 compact excavators are the latest additions to the company’s R2-Series family. The excavators feature low-effort joysticks and a new hydraulic control valve, which provides superior machine control and ease. Other new features include an integrated lift eye, arm-mounted auxiliary couplers and LED work lights. Key optional add-ons include a larger 7-inch touch display, clamp with diverter valve and a high-back heated seat with headrest.
- The Bobcat L23 and L28 small articulated loaders are designed to deliver precise maneuverability thanks to the articulation joint that enables the rear tires of the loader to match the path of the front tires as they turn. The result: highly nimble loaders that navigate around obstacles with ease and work well in enclosed yards and small work zones.
